Electric vehicles (EVs) are gaining popularity, with experts predicting a decline in demand for traditional petrol-diesel cars. Some argue that the future might belong to ammonia-powered cars rather than EVs. Recently, a Chinese car manufacturer introduced the world’s first ammonia-powered passenger car, and a company called Emoji developed an ammonia-engine-driven tractor.
These ammonia engines have environmental benefits, as they significantly reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 90%. Using ammonia in cars can contribute to a cleaner environment and save energy. As the adoption of ammonia engines increases, there’s a belief that it could impact the popularity of electric cars.
Like everything else, there are both positives and negatives to cars with ammonia engines. One disadvantage is that excessive ammonia can harm the engine and cause danger if it spreads in the air. Having too much ammonia in the car’s tank is also harmful. Additionally, ammonia pump stations will also be built everywhere when ammonia engines start being used. Which will prove harmful.
